Capital Raising Services

When seeking capital, companies often have multiple sources and options. Some businesses may simply need a loan. Others may require equity capital to grow. Raymond James can help established companies raise equity capital through both the public and private markets.

On the public equity side, Raymond James is an active underwriter of initial public offerings and follow-on offerings. In fact, Raymond James has served as lead- or co-manager on more than 450 public offerings in the last five years. Before accessing the public equity markets for capital, a company must be of certain size and consequence to effect a successful transaction.

Outside of the public equity arena, Raymond James helps companies raise capital through private placements of equity or preferred securities. This method of capital raising is most commonly used by private businesses; however, it can be employed by public entities as well. Finally, Raymond James also helps public companies raise capital through the issuance of convertible debt securities.
